Pesto Chicken Pinwheels

Friday, November 8, 2013

I didn't even think that I liked pesto until about a month ago when I went to Amanda's house and she made pesto chicken paninis! The paninis were delicious and I have made them a few times since having them at her house! Those paninis inspired me to make these Pesto Chicken Pinwheels for a pinochle party the other night! Everyone at the party really liked these so they have been deemed "blog worthy"! 

Pesto Chicken Pinwheels
1 pkg refrigerated crescent roll dough (Trader Joe's brand doesn't contain trans fats!)
3 Tbsp prepared pesto
1/2 cooked, diced chicken
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Unroll crescent dough and pinch seams together so that you are left with a rectangular piece of dough. 
2. Spread pesto over dough, top with chicken, then cover with cheese. 
3. Roll dough up just like you would when making cinnamon rolls. 
4. Slice into 1 inch sections and place on a baking stone or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 -18 minutes or until golden brown

We LOVE pesto here, especially on pizza. And not just basil pesto, but also with spinach and cilantro/lime. Someday I'll delve into kale pesto.~Sonja
